A Male Lab x Shepherd presently Available For Adoption

Ahoy, Matey!  Or you can just call me Matey.  I arrived at Animatch as an unclaimed stray, I was left high and dry.  Apparently finding homes for unwanted dogs is what Animatch does best.  So, I’ve come to the right place.  I know that opening your heart to the possibility of a lasting friendship with me can be a little scary.  Believe me, what you see is what you get and I’m the real deal.  I’ve been around the block more than once and I know I am so ready to settle down – commitment is what I am looking for.  Now, because I only speak dog, I am unable to give you the scoop on my previous life.  Suffice to say, it did not include much in the way of veterinary care.  Take a look at my ears, I’ve had so many untreated infections that they are permanently disfigured.  Nice ears are overrated anyways, especially for a guy like me who has so many other redeeming qualities, such as giving my paw for a treat!  Continued cleanings and maintenance with a special solution is going to help keep these babies stay clean.  I do have some arthritis in these hips, I tend to run like an old billy goat.  So, the doc has suggested cartrophen injections; not super expensive.  Remember I’m looking for commitment!  I like all humans and I like other dogs but if it were just me and you, life would still be good.  With maturity in years comes wisdom.  I am about 49 years old (7 in dog years), so I’m not looking for a casual fling – more like a life partner.  I do enjoy romantic cuddles on the couch and snacking on liver treats.  If you want to show me what a real family is all about, then you know the drill.  Fill in the Adoption Form.
